Being arrested for DWI is a life changing event. In the days that follow, you feel lower than you have ever felt, you are under tremendous stress, and yet, you are faced with decisions that will affect the rest of your life. You need experienced, effective legal counsel.
Our firm's mission is to prevent wrongful DWI convictions. Wrongful convictions happen every single day. These are cases where people plead guilty when they shouldn't, or lose at trial when they should have won. Even if YOU believe you are guilty, we will look at all of the evidence before you make a final decision, and get you the best possible outcome so that you can move forward with your life. If you are unsure of whether you are guilty, than you are probably not. Many think they are guilty simply because they are arrested, and don't realize the biases that police officers hold. We will give you the advice you need to make the right decision for you. But remember, the decision is ALWAYS yours.

personal injury case you are dealing with, we are prepared to help. Don't let the insurance companies keep the money that belongs to you. We are ready to fight for your case.
